    I worked Latitude backstage last weekend so I met lots of famous people

    Jarvis Cocker
    Sophie Ellis Bexter
    Keith Allen
    Ed Byrne
    Marcus Brigstocke
    Lee Mack
    Sean Lock
    Rufus Hound
    and about a billion other comedians.


    Was fun, but a bit weird chatting with people I've seen on TV. Keith Allen, Ed Byrne and Marcus Brigstocke were the nicest.



    Connection-wise I don't know many famous people. KT Tunstall is a friend of a friend, so I bump into her occassionally, but haven't seen her in about 6 months.

    Remember Tracy, that pink-haired woman from Big Brother? (not that I watched it, I just recognised her from constant adverts and general news in TV). I saw her in a street in London and took a photo with her.

    My mum was sure she saw Mick Jagger @ Heathrow last year, just walking by.

    Don't judge me now - I held Joe Jonas' hand for a while when he threw himself into the crowd during an Avril Lavigne concert last year. I don't really like the Jonas Brothers, they're too Disney-cheesy-ish for me, but hey, he was right next to me.

    Also just a few days ago I held hands several times with both Jess and Lisa from the Veronicas, I went to a concert in St Louis USA. They're awesome.

    Apart from music concerts and that one time with Tracy, though, no celebs!

    Oh, in answer to your sig - that makes you a Team Switzerland, like me!

    When I went to visit relatives in Dublin we went driving through a nearby town and my aunt kept going "Bono used to have a house there", "Bob Geldof has a house here", etc... And one time my cousin saw Billy Boyd on a street in Glasgow. I swear I saw Ricky Gervais having dinner at my hotel in Spain a few years back :dontknow: That's the extent of my famous ties I guess :p:

    David Seaman was in his jeep outside GAME where I live a few years ago, oh and I served Heather from Eastenders at work and walked past Roxy from Eastenders in the shopping centre that I work in. I saw Busted once when they came to Virgin Megastores ages ago, didn't like them though just happened to be walking by.
    No one mega famous though

    Haha I thought you knew about the Switzerland thing, it was to make sure. ;P

    I know! When I told my best friend about this there was a group of girls nearby (they didnt look older than 10) who kept glaring jealously at me. lol
    Not that I care too much, it's just to say that I once touched a famous person. (That's pathetic enough on its own.)
